Margaret A. Rice

Margaret A. “Maggie” Rice enjoyed a long and successful career as a teacher and school administrator in her native England. Born in Wellington, Somerset, to a grocer father and a teacher mother, she worked for two years in London before moving to the U.S. in 1968 with her husband, Ray, to attend graduate school at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where Ray gained a PhD in food technology.

          Maggie taught in three different early-years settings within the University and gained a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education.

          On returning to the UK, Maggie served as the head teacher of a nursery school in Hull; Devon County Advisory teacher for Under Fives; an Under Eights Inspector with Devon Social Services; and a college lecturer and child care center manager.

          Today, she and Ray enjoy family gatherings with their daughter Nicola; their son, Andrew, and his wife Maria; and three grandsons, Sebastian, Adam, and Harry. She values friendships, gardening, and music, and is a member of the Devon History Society and the Devon and Cornwall Record Society.

          The Henry Bagwell Story is her first book.
